As the heat of August sets in, I wonder how you are doing at keeping not just your body, but also your soul quenched. Here are a few questions to gnaw upon as you keep cool this week!
- How have you experienced the love of God in this past week?
- Where has God unexpectedly showed up to surprise you with grace?
- Which lives around you are better off today because of how you have lived your life this week?
- What do you need today to be refilled for the rest of this week — laughter? Compassion (with your self first; then those right next to you second)? Rest? The challenge of something new? Quiet? An act of generosity? All of the above? Once you know, ask yourself: What will you do to ensure you get refilled?
As faithful stewards of God’s gift of life, keep yourself well this week! AND: If you are having trouble keeping your soul quenched, please reach out! Call me. Text your care elder. Email a spiritual friend who can offer the space you need. It takes a village to get through a pandemic. Even if you remain shelter at home, do not try to go these days alone!!!
May peace surround and exude from you every step!
